Veterans Day Crafts and Activities for Young Kids

Posted November 7, 2017 by Julie in Military, Parenting / 2 Comments

As a military family, I’m always curious to see what others are doing to recognize Veterans Day. My son is just getting to the age where he can start understanding what it means that Daddy is in the military, and I think it helps to do activities to help in learning. I collected a list of these fun Veteran’s Day crafts and activities you can do with your children too.
